Excellent meal. Booking advisable as on the night we were there it was very busy which is understandable as the quality of the meal was very high.

Beautiful 16th Century Pub with Accommodation having a comfortable, traditional feel with a slight contemporary twist. Here at the Hardinge we are focusing on keeping the great british pub alive, with fantastic kept ales, a beautiful wine selection and home made fresh food. We offer a traditional pub menu, from our famous ham and eggs to something slightly more special from our specials board like our locally shot present... Tom and I have been here since February 2013, and have endeavoured to make a friendly and happy pub, so why not come down and try us... .
